6:17 am
our area. we will start watching for. that probably after midnight tonight or close to midnight. and then on. temperatures today will be getting in the in middle 50's, and then we will get in the 70's tomorrow with that rain. 72 degrees will be our temperature, and that is tuesday, it looks okay, it will be if the 50's and then we will start to get more interesting weather coming in by the time we hit that getaway day for thanksgiving. our future rain amounts. we will start to pick them up, and some areas could be looking at a decent amount of rain, and you may find that an indecent amount of rain as we see temperatures in the 70's and we will get a lot of rain with that moisture out there. so could somebody see an inch plus, it is possible? others less than that. so now our future weather let's time this out. by the time we hit 1:00 this afternoon, no problems around here but midnight tonight notice that the rain starts to come in the area and we will start to see this rain here tomorrow. overnight. the morning rush hour could be wet. there could be enough rain you
6:18 am
will find ponding out there and by the time we hit noon time tomorrow, still maybe a scattered shower or two around but the general trendies for all of this to start clearing out, tuesday looks fine and then wednesday, when everybody is making their plans to get away, travel, do whatever, that is when we will start to pick up some clouds. we may be picking up a system forming off the carolina coast. does it stay far off the coast and brush us with some rain especially areas east of i-95? does it come closer? do we get a mix as colder air gets dragged down. there are several scenarios out there in set in stone but if you just generally expect a rain/snow mix, without much in the way i think it is a small chance at this point that there is anything accumulating that you have to be dealing with we all necessity what rain and snow mixed in can do to travel. these are the future snow amounts, subject to snow a change a million time. nothing through new jersey the way things look right now and
6:19 am
little bit farther back to the west where temperatures will be colder. again, this is just an indication, it is early, the storm has not even formed. so we're just guessing, in a scientific way going for. just know wednesday could be a messy travel day. 55 degrees today for us, not a bad day to day. 48 degrees tonight. we are looking for temperatures that could be rivalling the record on monday. monday's record here is 71 degrees. it could be 72 degrees on monday. remember that heavy rain that starts tonight overnight and through the first part of the morning tomorrow with a lingering shower but generally becomes breezy and windy at the shore. tuesday 55. wednesday 40 degrees. that rain/snow mix possible and thursday thanksgiving at this point looks like it is drying out. you know, you can stay on top of the ever changing forecast by down loading the cbs philly weather april. check live radar and get weather alerts and more, it is a available now in itunes and
